CAD-ASC provides consultation and information on Deaf needs and interests to the public, businesses, media, educators, governments, and others. We conduct research and collect data, issue reports, and provide expertise regarding Deaf concerns and rights. We develop and implement pilot programs and “best practices.” We offer assistance to Deaf organizations and service agencies across the country and also provide a major library and resource centre on deafness at our office in Ottawa, Ontario.
